Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. As the lights are working then it means that the control panel is working fine. This issue can be caused due to a faulty door latch or door lock switch as if the door latch will not engage the dishwasher will sense as open door and won’t start the cycle. If you think that both of these are fine then it is the control panel that needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

My indesit idl has stopped working. The red light comes on but none of the green setting lights come on - any ideas


Led 1= Prewash / 3hr
Led 2= Wash / 6hr
Led 3= Rinses / 9 hr
Led 4= Drying / 12hr

LED. illuminated
1 = Overflow ( water in base )
tip machine back. does water come out? if so you have a leak, possibly from bottom spray arm nut or loose salt pot. see if they are loose. if not, remove the base, put dishwasher on a block of wood, shine torch underneath to see where the leak is.

1+2 = Pump timeout, or Software recognition error ( timer not programmed, wrong keypad)

1+3 = Circulation pump not working

2+3 = Not filling

2+4 = Heating circuit not working

2 = Solenoid valve 'broken'

3 = Thermistor (NTC) cicuit not working

4 = Temp not reached whilst heating ( poss NTC detached from casing).

remove door panel. ntc is attatched to the rear of dispenser, a little white thing with 2 black wires on it. refit to the clip on the dispenser.

It is usually necessary to 'reset' the machine after a fault code has been displayed. Resetting.
Switch dishwasher OFF, rotate the selector switch to STOP/CHANGE and switch on, after a few seconds the LEDS will go out enabling a new programme to be selected

You have a timer relay issue ,probable need a new board for it ,a cheap fix would be to time it and see how long it take to run full cycle and put a regulaer outlet timer on it or a alarm off your stove or what ever,save a couple of bucks

Smeg ST660 not starting


Switch the power off. Remove the 'built-in cupboard' panel from the front of the dishwasher and you should see the end of the timer spindle. With the power off you can turn this clockwise using another appliance knob or carefully with pliers. I think one 'start' position is with the flat section below the centre and horizontal. If the two lights are not on then try the 'start' button second from left to advance the timer.

Blinking lights, unresponsive


I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.

SMEG dishwasher - cycle buttons


What is the model of the dishwasher? Open the door and look down the right hand side for a sticker and repost please. As a rule number 3 is a normal wash :D
